Wavion base stations can now support a multitude of concurrent high quality voice calls in parallel to high capacity data flows. This capability is achieved by using a new mechanism that optimizes the air utilization and by leveraging Wavion’s unique and powerful beamforming technology that provides robust and high quality links.
The Wavion VoIP end to end solution integrate the WBS base station with off-the-shelf standard based components as Wi-Fi clients and a SIP bases ATA devices for the voice device. The Wavion solution can run on both 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz license exempt bands. Wavion’s Data and VoIP bundled solution optimizes the number of simultaneous calls, application priority and other consideration to support an end-to-end carrier grade voice and data services.
Wavion’s powerful spatially adaptive beamforming base stations provide extended range and higher throughput connectivity to standards-based Wi-Fi clients.
